Do you want to try mosaic knitting, but aren’t ready to jump into a large project like a shawl? This bracelet will help you practice your mosaic knitting technique. Mosaic knitting uses just one color at a time and a combination of knit and slip stitches to create fun colorwork. Give it a try!
Size Loosely fits a wrist between 5 3/4” (14.6 cm) and 6 1/2” (16.5 cm). Instructions are included to modify for a larger/smaller wrist.
Yarn: Approximately 8 yds (7.3 m) or 0.07 oz (2 g) each of two high contrast fingering weight yarn. Choose solid or mostly solid colored yarn that has good stitch definition and select yarn that has enough contrast to allow the colorwork to stand out.
The sample used: Linen Quill by Purl Soho (50% Fine Highland Wool, 35% Alpaca, 15% Linen; fingering wt., 439 yds (401 m), 3.5 oz (100 g)) in:
MC: Dark Iris CC: Stonewall Gray Needles: US 1 (2.25 mm) or size to obtain gauge
Notions: Tapestry needle, one 0.75” (1.9 cm) button
Gauge: 9 sts / 17.5 rows = 4” / 10 cm in Pattern after a light blocking Because this project is so small, I recommend to just start working the cuff instead of swatching -- if you don’t achieve gauge, it is easy to start over. Exact gauge is not critical in this pattern as the bracelet is stretchy and you can add/remove a colorwork repeat to help the bracelet fit better.
Techniques Required: Standard increases/decreases, creating a buttonhole, mosaic knitting
